Gerard Pique

Having seen his side beaten 3-0 over two legs, Gerard Pique admitted that Juventus outplayed Barcelona and deserved their victory, but was impressed with the way Blaugrana fans responded.

“To see Camp Nou like that after a defeat fills me with pride as a Culé,” said Pique. “It was difficult to overturn the first leg result and we did have several chances that we were unable to convert into goals.

“As time wore on, it became increasingly unlikely we’d achieve our objective. Juve know how to defend very well and today they proved that. The Bianconeri played a style of football that is suited to them and did it very well.

“Over the two legs, Juventus played better than we did and deserved to go through to the semi-finals. I wish them all the best going forward and I think they can win the Champions League this season.”
